Jew - Jews - Jewish
And the Western Christian Church
That is a legitimate question and one that this site was established to answer.
The truth about Jews in the Bible, and who Jews are today, is a foundational truth and therefore much more important than many Christians realize.
If the foundational truths are interpreted incorrectly then what is built upon them also becomes wrong, and as it continues to build the distortions multiply. As a metaphor example, if a High-rise building, during construction, is off plumb even 1/16 of an inch per foot (the width of just the letter "o" on this page), at 50 stories it will have a 32 inch tilt at the top. 1/16 of an inch is not much in itself but as it grows the affect compounds greatly and if continued unabated there will come a point where that building will collapse. This metaphor also illustrates how the foundations for our spiritual beliefs must also remain correctly aligned or what we embrace as truth will eventually become a monstrous lie that will greatly distort God's Spiritual Truths.
The Western Christian Church, increasingly since the formation of modern Israel, has created and taught many lies regarding who the Jews of the Bible were, and who they are today. Many of these lies have become rooted in our beliefs, and accepted as fact, mostly through repetition and nothing more. Most of these lies have been taught, and spread, by honest well meaning people who thought they were presenting God's Truth, but were not. As Christians we can embrace either God's eternal Truth or man's false delusions of truth, or as Jesus called it "the doctrines and precepts of men". Moreover we must always be ready to let go of, or adjust, our current beliefs if and when we get a clearer understanding of God's Truth.
The final Jewish Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans in A.D. 70, just as Jesus said it would in Mat 24:2, Mark 13:2, and Luke 19:44. The Jewish population at that time were either killed, enslaved or scattered into Diaspora. With that event the recorded/traceable Jewish genealogies ended. That should not surprise any Bible believing person because God said, in scripture, as far back as the time of Moses, that it would happen. In Deuteronomy 6:15, God said He would "wipe" Israel "from the face of the earth" if they were unfaithful.
Anyone who knows the Bible also knows that the sons of Israel were repeatedly unfaithful from that time forward; and eventually became as unfaithful as any people could be when they rejected and then killed God's Messiah, Jesus. Therefore, in A.D. 70 (with their final end coming in A.D. 135), the Biblical, traceable, Jewish identity, for all practical purposes, was "wiped" from the face of the earth.
Therefore, the people who call themselves Jews of today have no more of a traceable connection to ancient Israel than any other person alive. A Jew today is not a traceable, unbroken direct descendant of Biblical Israel, and neither is any other human alive (this is addressed in more detail in other sections of this site: Page 7, Page 8 ).
Spiritual lies need to be silenced in truth, and the foundation for many of these lies is rooted in the misconceptions that revolve around those who were called Jews in the Bible.
Jesus is Truth, and lies are of the Devil, therefore when we embrace lies as truth we are embracing evil; the spirit of anti-Christ.
The Western Christian Church is sinning greatly by ignorantly embracing and teaching lies about Biblical Jews and modern Israel, and this is some of how it is being manifested:
1. Many Christian's are now embracing and running to those who practice a form of modern Christian divination. We run to scores of "End Time Prophecy" teachers to tell us the future; a practice God specifically condemns (Lev 19:26, Deut 18:10). Moreover, the false concepts regarding modern Israel, and modern Jews is the cornerstone for many of the lies of this "end times prophecy," also called dispensationalism (Dispensationalism is end time prophecy as it is dispensed over a period of time).
2. It has caused much of the Western Christian Church to embrace, as some have stated," a defeatist, escapist, attitude in regards to what is happening in the world around us. "
3. We reverence modern Israel; a nation who institutionally embraces an anti-Christ (anti-Jesus) spirit.
Christians need to understand that Modern Israel is a nation who:
4. Scriptural truth is now distorted by incorrectly interpreting what the name Jew actually meant in the Bible, and what the Jewish era actually was.
5. Modern Israel & modern Jews have become our "Golden Calf Idol" (Exo 32:2-4) so to speak, which we all to often reverence and hold up as an idol. For many years much of what we have heard, and been taught, about Israel and Jews in the Old Testament, New Testament, and especially Modern Jews and Modern Israel, is a misconception at best and at worst a deceptive lie.
God's Church will continue to grow throughout the world. However, if this insidious sin (our reverence towards Jesus hating Israel) is not purged from the American Christian Church, it may not apply to us.
We have allowed this sin to gradually become entrenched in the Church to the extent we are no longer the Salt and Light of our nation, and if this sin is not purged out soon, the religious freedom as we now know it, may no longer exist.
The Bible shows us how God handles His people when they refuse to repent from their sinful actions. Because we have welcomed the spirit of antichrist into the Church and given it a position of respect and even worship, I see no way that the Western Christian Church can avoid being judged (unless you are oblivious to what is happening in America today, you can not help but see what has been occurring. See Page 24 ).
Furthermore, we make pilgrimages to Israel and act as if it is sacred Holy land, even though there are no "Holy Lands" in Christianity. All this at the same time that Israel spits on the name of Jesus. In its 60+ years of existence, Israel has never allowed Christian missionaries to openly present the Gospel. However, Israel of course has no problem taking Christian's money just as long as we keep "our Jesus" to ourselves.
In essence, we have filtered God's Word through these lies and created our own form of Christian divination. For instance, it is easy to find American Christian organizations calling their faithful to divination sessions. These sessions are not identified as "divination," but are called "End Time Prophecy" seminars or classes. However, it is divination none the less wherein so-called Bible teachers reveal the future through distorted scripture. It is amazing that this continues because after almost 60 years of this foolishness, with Israel as its focal point, not one of their prophecies has ever come true. That fact in itself, to say the least, should disturb every Bible believing Christian.
Sadly, many of the most noted, and respected Christian leaders are the ones who are causing this sin to proliferate.
At the same time, modern Israel is repeating the Christ-rejecting sins of the ancient Pharisees. Therefore, by giving special credence to Israel, the Western Christian Church is joining with them in their sin. We are like fools repeating their folly and, as God's word says in Proverbs 26:11, like a dog returning to his vomit.
Have you noticed that we now even have our own form of "Christian political correctness", wherein anything said against Israel is immediately rejected or silenced?
It has been said, "It is easy to determine what someone worships when you find out what they will not allow you to criticize."
So what difference does it make? It makes all the difference in the world if the American Christian Church, and the America we once knew, are to survive.
